    Thanks!

    Didn't like there old test kits but the new ones are good.

    Its a little expensive to start the program but I like it so far. They have a video on there website that is really interesting on how corals derive their colors based on key elements in the water column.
    the colors test kit was around $70 and the supplement pack is $20.

    Its based on potassium, iron and iodine and how it works with calcium alk and magnesium.

    I did go to marine depot to check it out. Probably going to give it a try.

    I would like more greens/blues.

    I've had an explosion of color since I've been dosing potassium, and iodide.

    Congrats on the new corals.

    Love the Montipora. Do you know the name of the first coral, looks like a stag/Formsa?

    Well they look happy. I see growth and decent to good PE, but you were working in the tank. All acclimated very nicely.

    Thanks!
    instead of added a media reactor (no room) I picked up a fuval 206 and took all the sponges out just to run carbon or whatever else i need.
